This is where I'll live
When I was little, I really really wanted my dad to build me a treehouse in our backyard. Unfortunately, you need the right kind of tree to build a treehouse, and we did not have that kind of tree. So my dreams of a treehouse were short lived :(
This is where I'll live
A few days ago, a friend told me she had a dream where I lived in a fancy tree house. And that made me very very happy :)

Alison Sudol in Rue

Friday, January 28, 2011
Issue 3 of Rue Magazine came out yesterday and holy moly oly, I love it! I've seen Rue start from scratch with Crystal and Anne and I can really tell they put their whole hearts into it. This issue included an interview with Alison Sudol, lead singer of A Fine Frenzy and I really enjoyed reading the piece on her. Alison seems like a beautiful person, both inside and out.

So grab a cup of coffee or tea (it's quite a lengthy issue, but rightfully so since it's so lovely) and flip through the new issue of Rue!

DIY snow globes

DIY snow globes
I've been scheming up a new craft project to do, when I found this snow globe DIY on Martha Stewart, found via the Free People blog. And they seem pretty easy to make!
DIY snow globes
"Fill the jar almost to the top with distilled water; add a pinch of glitter and a dash of glycerin (available at drugstores) to keep the glitter from falling too quickly. Don't add too much, or the glitter will stick to the bottom of the jar when it's flipped. Screw on the lid tightly, being careful not to dislodge the figurine. Turn the jar over and back again -- and let it snow!"

Haven't done self-portraits in a while, so I thought I'd try them again.

Yesterday was the first day of my English class. I think I'm going to like it very much.

PS. Winner of the SGC N-Y-C giveaway is comment #22: Lauren Curious Constellation. Congrats, Lauren! Please email me with what item you would like from the Spring Summer 2011 collection and I will forward that information to SGC N-Y-C so they can ship it out :)

Project garland

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Over the weekend, I made a garland for my room. I haven't done a craft project for my room in a while, so it's nice to have something new to look at on my wall now. I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out.

Cellardoor Magazine The Magic of Winter Issue

Tuesday, January 25, 2011
I discovered Cellardoor Magazine quite a while ago and was meaning to write a blog post about it, but kept forgetting. Well, a few days ago, they launched their Fifth Issue and my my my, it is quite the loveliest little issue you could ever stumble upon. I was quite smitten spending part of my weekend swooning over the pretty pictures and such. I especially liked this editorial by Benjamin Kwan. The setting reminds me of an old fishing village and I seem to be really into black and white these days...

On Friday nights at Color Me Mine, they have something called Pajama Night, where if you show up in your PJs, then the studio fee is free. Have you ever done that? It's so much fun! I usually go with a cup of tea in tow and my comfiest PJs for maximum coziness. This past Friday, I went with my mom and painted a plate for my friend Carly.

I can't wait to go back next week, after they've fired the plate, to pick it up :)

Every once and a while, I come across a photographer that blows my mind. Rus Anson was one of them. So was Amber Gray. And my most recent photographer find is Roberto Rubalcava. His photographs are so dreamlike, they seem unreal, like paintings, almost. He captures texture and movement so well, I can't help but to keep staring at his photos. I would say more, but I dare not speak for fear of ruining the beauty of these photographs.

    New York in the rain

    New York in the rain
    Last month, when I was in NYC, I was able to meet up with a lot of amazing people. I mentioned meeting Tiffany and shooting for her shop, Rock Paper Vintage and also shooting with my friend Rachael. But I haven't mentioned Rockie Nolan yet. Rockie is one of the loveliest people ever, even if she won't admit it herself! She's a wonderful photographer studying at SCAD who was in New York around the same time as I. While in New York, she interned at Jed Root, an agency that represents pretty much everyone but models. It rained during our afternoon spent together, which was quite unfortunate, but at least it made for some pretty pictures.

    We wandered through streets, taking pictures of strangers, and went in a few stores too. The first store was... well, I'll let you guess. Bonus points if you can figure it out!
